TJ's Dinner Theatre serves up classic American food and entertainment in a casual setting. Cooks prepare burgers, pizzas, and giant soft pretzels while patrons relax and watch movies. Though the theater opened in its current location in February 2013, its centerpiece is much older: "Shirley," the projector that casts movies onto the big screen, has been in use since 1949, reports metroWNY.
Dipson Theatres celebrates a reputation as a regional movie institution with a network of 9 locations lighting 46 silver screens across Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania. Though the company now spreads across the northeast United States, it began in the small city of Batavia, NY, in 1939?a time when movies were called ?picture shows,? Roosevelt was in the White House, and everybody could only see in black and white. Today that tradition underlies the cinematic experience as patrons chomp popcorn and sip sodas, marveling at modern 3-D visual adventures, summer action movies, family-friendly features, or even indie art flicks and footage from world-renowned opera performances.
The theater at The Screening Room Cinema Cafe bears more of a resemblance to an intimate club than a multiplex, seating its guests at small tables so they can sip on beer and wine during films. The floor-level screen flashes with arthouse cinema, including new indie flicks and cult favorites, as well as classics from cinematic giants such as Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg. In addition to its usual screenings, the café also hosts poetry nights, film festivals, and high-definition broadcasts of sports games recorded by a mascot with a giant camera for a head.
A 15,000-watt lamp projector, six-channel surround sound playing from 44 speakers, and a six-story screen that reaches to the very edge of your peripheral vision. With larger-than-life audio and visual displays, Niagara Falls IMAX puts audiences right in the action. The current film, Niagara: Miracles, Myths & Magic, explores the 12,000-year history of the falls and highlights the daredevils who plunged over the cascading waters inside barrels or the open mouths of whales.
Just outside of the theater, the Niagara Daredevil Exhibit delves deeper into the stories of those thrill seekers. Here, visitors can learn more about the lives of Niagara Falls daredevils and even touch some of the barrels that carried them over the falls and into legend.
